Method 1:
---------
try uninstalling both the softwares (diskkeeper & bigfix) first.

reboot your machine.

now try installing the software you need!
this should work!


Method 3:
---------
if you find the above method failing then you could try this-

Check the path to where the software was installed ('c:\program files\bigfix or diskkeeper) then delete the folder manually if it exists.

Start Windows Explorer -> Tools -> Folder Options -> File Types Tab. In the displayed list check if the files related to BigFix or DiskKeeper are displayed .. if yes .. select it & click on the remove button.

Then try installing the required software again.


One more thing, do check the properties of the file by right clicking it, the Target should have a value to 'c:\program files\bigfix\exefilename' or 'c:\program files\diskkeeper\exefilename' ... verify this first!

No need to uninstall / install anything.
Simply, select the file for which you wanna change the File Association. Hold down the SHIFT key and click the Right button of your mouse. You will get a popup asking which program to use , select the program , and check the "Always use this program for ..." . You will be thru. You can also use the Explorer -> Tools -> Folder Options -> File Types Tab, to change File association types.

But there is really no need to uninstall / install stuff.
Tell me , waiting for your acknowledgement.

ok in that case .. do u know the path to which the diskkeeper software was installed!
(ie. c:\program files\diskkeeper)


Secondly is the DiskKeeper software listed within the 'Open with ..' list, if yes ... select it!

else

click on the 'Other' button and select the path to where the DiskKeeper software is installed.

this should solve your problem.
